A garden store recently sold 511 seed packets, including 146 pepper seed packets. What is the experimental probability that the next seed packet sold will be a pepper seed packet?

Question
Answer 1

#2/7# or #~~29%#.

Take the number of event occurrences divided by the total number. For instance, #146# divided by #511# is #.2857# and when changed to a fraction, is #2/7#.
There is a #2# in #7# chance that the next packet will be a pepper packet based on the data given.
